Manufacturers rate batteries in watt-hours

Post Sat Jul 07, 2012 10:41 am
Manufacturers rate batteries in watt-hours; if they rate the watt-hour higher, the longer the battery can be expected to last.

A if they rate the watt-hour higher, the longer
B rating the watt-hour higher, it is that much longer
C the higher the watt-hour rating, the longer
D the higher the watt-hour rating, it is that much longer that
E when the watt-hour rating is higher, the longer it is

Not sure how to post / hide OA ?

A and B can be eliminated right off the bat; manufacturers are not rating the watt-hour itself.

C is parallel and work well: "the higher..., the longer..."

D gets overly wordy and awkward by adding "it is that much", which ruins the parallel form.

E uses "it", which is ambiguous.
Also id it right to assume that 'when' refers to time an event takes places and so its usage in E is incorrect.Please clarify!!

Correct.
E implies that it is expected to last only at a particular moment: WHEN the rating is higher.
Not the intended meaning.
